Jenna Bennett is on vacation this week, so we’re celebrating the launch of COVET Books, from Entangled Publishing! Jenna’s book, Tall, Dark and Divine, is now available! It’s a laugh out loud story about love with a Greek god. Coming later today are Candace Havens’s, Take it Like a Vamp, and Melissa Bourbon Ramirez’s Deceiving the Witch Next Door.
We hope you’re intrigued by this new line of contemporary romance books with paranormal twists!
Tall, Dark, and Divine
When Eros met Annie…
Annie Landon has given up on finding Mr. Right. Instead, she’s looking for Mr. Right-Here-Right-Now. Then she overhears a conversation in the bathroom of Dionysus’s Bar about a recently-dumped “Greek God” – and he sounds exactly what she’s looking for.
But picking up Eros, the Greek god of love, for a one-night stand is easier said than done, especially when he has sworn off mortals forever.
Can a woman looking for love – and the matchmaking god who wants her to find it with someone else – have a shot at a happy ending… or will Eros’s golden arrows miss their mark?
“I enjoyed revisiting Astoria, where I spent a few of my formative years – those in my early twenties – and it was a lot of fun creating a New York City neighborhood where Greek gods live and work and rub elbows with the general population… even if the population in general doesn’t know they’re there. And it’s my first attempt at romantic comedy, which was fun too. I didn’t really consciously set out to write romantic comedy, it just happened; but it was a fun ride, and I think the result turned out pretty well. But of course we’ll have to see what the readers say!” ~ Jenna Bennett
Favorite line: “You gotta spread the gift around, know what I mean? Every woman deserves a night in the sack with a god.” (Attributed to Dionysus, Greek god of wine and debauchery; NYC bar owner and the hero’s best friend)

Deceiving the Witch Next Door
Storie Bell has a little secret—she’s a witch. But magic hasn’t exactly kept her life from being a complete mess—her love life is non-existent and the town thinks she’s a total nutter. Plus there’s her neighbor Reid Malone who runs hot one minute and cold the next.
Reid Malone can’t wait to escape Bloomington, Texas. Unfortunately, he’s stuck where he is unless he helps his father hide a very illegal secret. The only key to Reid’s freedom lies with the eccentric Storie…and he’ll do whatever it takes to get the information he needs from her.
But Reid’s holding something back. Something big. And if he’s not careful, he’ll find out exactly what when you try to deceive a witch…
“I never knew writing a light paranormal romance could be so fun! I love Bloomington, the Storiebook Cafe, and Reid and Storie’s romance. They start out with an incredible attraction to each other, but it quickly goes south and they turn into enemies of a sort. But the magic–quite literally–happens when Storie moves back to Bloomington, Reid needs something, and he’s willing to deceive her to get it.”
Favorite line: “Not at all. I think your lists are helpful. I can think of all kinds of things we could make lists about. Why you should let me up here to work. Why we should finish this bottle of wine. Why you should let me into your bed.” Reid Malone to Storie Bell

Take it Like a Vamp
Vampire Nick Christos might have been born in the Middle Ages, but those days seem tame compared to the last eight years spent ruling the Supernatural Council. The only respite in his long days of governing is with his sweet neighbor Casey Meyers. Sure, he’s forced to take a cold shower after every encounter, but no way will he risk anything more with a human. Not with his blood thirsty ex on the prowl and out to ruin Nick’s life.
But when said crazy ex shows up at the ball and flies her freak flag high, Nick has more to worry about than keeping his hands off his neighbor. He’ll have to stay closer than ever if he hopes to keep her alive, but will she want to leave him forever when she learns the truth?
“I never thought I’d write a vampire, but I have to tell you that except for the whole biting thing, I’m sort of in love with my hero Nick. First of all, he’s an international playboy, who happens to be a gazzilionaire, and he falls for a curvy girl. One with hips and boobs. What’s not to love about that? He looks like Adonis. He cares for her and wants her to be happy. And he would do anything for her. Don’t we all want that in a relationship? I love my husband, but if Nick showed up at my door and wanted to take me away, the hub would have wind burn I’d be running out so fast. (Smile)
